Just as France calmed down after the case of a student threatening a teacher with a ‘gun’ in class went viral, another scandal has hit the suburbs of Paris after a student beat and attempted to strangle his teacher at a school.

The violent incident took place at a vocational high school in the Bezons commune earlier in November, when a 16-year-old attacked his math professor after he told him to leave the class.

Instead of leaving, the teen hit the teacher’s nose with his palm and “grabbed his neck to strangle him,” a source familiar with the case told AFP. Other students intervened to separate them and control their classmate.

The teacher was rushed to a local emergency room with minor injuries to the neck.

The teen was indicted for “aggravated violence” on Sunday, according to the local prosecutor's office. He has been placed “under judicial control” and is banned from attending the school or approaching the victim.

People on social media have reacted to the case, saying that some schoolchildren “refuse to recognize the rules.”

They also criticized the teen’s parents and the quality of education the student received.

The newest incident comes less than a month after an appalling video online showed a student at another French school in the Creteil commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris threatening a teacher with a dummy ‘gun’ in class. Both the Twittersphere and politicians questioned the regularity of such incidents and the authorities’ response.

R ~ Labeled a student. How cute. What is his ethnic background? Is he French at all? Ah, we'll be waiting for the full story... for a long time. It's hilarious to hear that this is due to the 'quality of education'. That's a good way to avoid the obvious question - who is doing the educating? We're expected to treat teachers as some special people dedicated to education but from where I sit I see teachers who could care less about education (an easy gig) in favor of teaching their demented politics which consists solely of emotional triggers and facts twisted into pretzels, or better yet, omitted entirely.
